County Lodging Tax Revenue Allowable Uses

Concerning the expansion of the allowable uses of county lodging tax revenue.
2018 Regular Session
Local Government
Bill Summary

Counties are currently authorized, with prior voter approval, to levy a county lodging tax for the purpose of advertising and marketing local tourism. The bill eliminates the requirement that the lodging tax be used for advertising and marketing local tourism. If a county already has a lodging tax that is limited to advertising and marketing local tourism, then the county would need prior voter approval to begin using the lodging tax revenues for any other purpose. The requirement that election costs be reimbursed from a county lodging tax tourism fund, which will no longer be the sole depository of the county tourism tax revenue, is discontinued.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
